    I like the Avalon U5 for bass and guitar DI. I really like the smaller size of the Summit Audio TD-100 , but I haven't tried one yet. I've heard the TD-100 has similar good qualities to the U5, but is slightly warmer.

    what do you think?

    Also, for some tone shaping, it seems that it would be ideal to add an EQ after the DI. Since I need two channels, the Speck ASC would fit side by side in 1U. But a pair of them would be at the high limit of my budget. I'm open to suggestions for two channels of EQ that might cost less than the Specks (~ $975/pair street price)
